Announcement here. I'm off to add a bugzilla issue, if it doesn't exist yet. Here are highlights.

Quote:
* Install NVIDIA OpenGL headers by default.

* Added initial support for Xinerama + OpenGL; see APPENDIX X in
the text README.

* Added support for the EXT_framebuffer_object OpenGL extension.

* Added NV-CONTROL support for manipulating DDC/CI settings; see
the AllowDDCCI X config option in the text README.

* Added support for GPU clock manipulation; see the "Coolbits"
X config option documented in Appendix D.

* Added support for NVIDIA Quadro G-Sync.

* Added support for the AGP variant of GeForce 6200.

* Improved DPMS behavior on flatpanels.

* Removed support for legacy GPUs; please see (sec-01) CHOOSING THE
NVIDIA PACKAGES APPROPRIATE FOR YOUR SYSTEM in the README for details.



I really, really hope this fixed the sporatic XID errors I've been having...

Hehe, I was most happy for the support for xinerama. that makes me a happy monkey. How long till they hit portage? I'll do a sync morning and night to try and get them... Manual install seemed to not work.

Nvidia didn't discontinue the support of those cards. They just removed the support of those legacy cards from the normal driver package and they will (at some point) release a different driver package for legacy cards.

Also, russianpirate, those cards are supported, but not in this driver release. If you'd read the whole thing it explains that they will be supported in a legacy driver release.

Ha ha ha ha ha! It will never happen. They want you to buy newer and expensive cards.

Ya but they dont want ppl pissed off and switching to ATI cause their cards didnt no more. I would surely never use NVIDIA if my card didnt work cause of their want for me to buy a new card 8)
Anyways NVIDIA is not like microsoft, theyre not complete capitalists :P

PS: i cant believe (i just found out) that nvidia developed 3dfx, that was a tight card (i have 3000 :))
